Sony To Stream GDC Press Conference, Watch Here!

This is set to jump off at the top of the hour, 4PM Pacific time. It'll be Sony's press conference for GDC, where we're expecting to hear a whole lot about the publisher's new motion controller, which I secretly hope isn't called "Arc," unless a big chunk of the conference is devoted to making that name make sense. 

Also, games! Expect to hear a few announcements and, well, maybe we'll even get a trailer or two out of it. Brad and Drew are on the scene, as well, as we understand there will be some playable games on-hand once the presentation is finished. So expect to hear from them later on.

@Manhattan_Project: Wow that was poor, my bad. I even remember reading that then forgetting it after a couple of minutes of that music had played. I blame sleep deprivation, I suppose I will just catch the archived version in the morning!

I bet if you could see the working drawings for how the camera calculates where the wand is, 'Arc' would totally make sense.  I mean, it's no 'Spacecream Cone' obviously, but it's still a pretty good name I think.

Lets play a drinking game. Anytime someone says "Playstation" or "Sony" take a shot.
If anybody mentions crabs, we take 5.
